Happy Chinese New Year!



Any plans for tonight/tomorrow? I've actually got a lot of work to do so I probably won't do much today but tomorrow, I'm sure I'll go out to celebrate with friends! I hope everyone has a good time. The restaurant business is doing really well today - we're fully booked which is good news, especially seeing as I forecasted no more than 5 tables. To add, it's the year of the OX:

Quote by Ox
The Ox is the second sign of the Chinese zodiac. Like its predecessor and complement, the Rat, it signifies new beginnings. The main difference is the Ox is associated with building to last and slow but sure action. Even more so than last year we all have to make good choices, as that which is begun now is likely to have long term consequences.
As with last year, this is an Earth year. The difference is this one is yin rather than yang. It is thus likely to be less tumultuous. On a personal level, better results are more likely to be achieved by reacting to circumstances and going with the flow rather than aggressively charging forward and initiating a lot of action.
Unfortunately Earth has a destructive relationship with the Ox's fixed element, Water. In fact this is the fourth in a run of six years governed by an unlucky conflict of elements. This fact should come as no surprise to those who have followed US and world financial markets or the unspeakable horror that has persisted in Iraq.
The combination of Earth and Ox, however, is not at all a negative combination. Its primary characteristic is durability. It suggests an environment dominated by cautious pragmatism rather than quixotic dreaming. Things will get done.
Interestingly this is an equally good time for thinking and all kinds of intellectual endeavors. Planning, scholarship and research, for example, are favorable activities. It is also an auspicious time for the arts; although, under Earth's influence, applied arts such as design and graphics may do best.
Furthermore, they will generally be successful if done in harmony with the spirit of the Earth Ox. This applies both to the type and amount of new projects as well as the approach to accomplishing them. That means focusing on just a few, long term projects. It also suggests proceeding in a cautious yet determined manner. Finally, it counsels avoiding taking unnecessary risks and yielding to the temptation to seek short term gains.
There is likely to be a focus on career and self improvement this year to the detriment of family. People thus need to be attentive and creative so that this area does not suffer. It is, however, a relatively good time to begin a new romance. Those in a relationship may want to consider raising it to the next level, to include marriage.
The year 2009 will be a period of lasting accomplishments. This is true for individuals, societies and the human race in general. There may be times when motivation appears to be lacking. In fact the big challenge everyone faces is to generate the enthusiasm and desire to act. Those individuals and organizations that do will create enduring benefits for themselves and the world.

I hate you I don't even get that much throughout all my Chinese new years combined.

But if I get at least $100, that's a lot of money for a college student with no job.

Quote by The Top 10 Of Bad Luck

* 1. Buying books is bad luck because 書 is a homonym for 輸
* 2. Offering anything in fours, as 四 is a homonym for 死
* 3. Buying a pair of shoes is considered bad luck. 鞋 is a homophone for 諧
* 4. Getting a hair-cut in the first lunar month puts a curse on maternal uncles. Therefore, people get a hair-cut before the New Year’s Eve.
* 5. Washing your hair is also considered to be washing away one’s own luck
* 6. Sweeping the floor is usually forbidden on the first day, as it will sweep away the good fortune and luck for the new year.
* 7. Saying words like “finished” and “gone” is inauspicious on the New Year, so sometimes people would avoid these words by saying “I have eaten my meal so that it disappeared” rather than say “I have finished my meal.”
* 8. Talking about death is inappropriate for the first few days of Chinese New Year, as it is considered inauspicious.
* 9. Avoid clothes in black and white, as black is a symbol of bad luck, and white is a traditional Chinese funeral colour.
* 10. Foul language is inappropriate during the Chinese New Year.




The homonyms aren't quite right because the tone is different but it's close enough!

I'm sorry but she's right, you know. I think this year will be my year even though I am not an Ox. The Ox is actually supposed to curtail my progress this year ¬_¬

EDIT: I almost couldn't read some of it because it's simplified. It's slightly messed up, mate.
